When bad-boy drummer Kaidan Rowe encounters good girl Anna Whitt, the girl chosen to vanquish the demons from earth, he can't stop thinking about her. The Nephilim son of the Duke of Lust, Kaidan tries to help Anna embrace a life of sin, but she gradually helps him see that he's meant to do more with his life. Their relationship is as tortured as it is passionate, for Nephilim are forbidden to fall in love. But as hard as they may try to obey, Kai can't seem to stay away from Anna, nor Anna from Kai.
Full of chemistry and high-stakes drama, this companion book is darker, hotter, and completely satisfying.
We’ve been through quite a bit these past few book. I have wanted to make out with you, stab you, hug you, make out with you some more. Stab you some more too. I know, I know. That’s a pretty common reaction when it’s concerning you. Well that and wanting to sleep with you, you being the son of the demon of lust and all that.
All the other books were from Anna’s perspective, and I have to say, getting to know you from YOU was rather wonderful. And those moments when Anna’s daddy put the Fear of God (pardon the pun) into you and I just love her dad. He’s so protective of her. Of course him being the Lord of Substance Abuse sort of adds to the mystery. AND HIS LOVE STORY WITH HER MOM IS JUST SO AWHHHH.
But, you. Kai. You’re so sweet. And I love that I can see all aspects of you in SWEET TEMPTATION. You’re so worried, and so in love, and so curious. Since this books has you through all of the first three, it’s a bit of a condensed. It’s helpful to have the first three books under your belt.
I think that you are one of the most un-perfect, laugh-out-loud, sweetest not-humans I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading about. You love her. Love her love her. I sort of do and don’t wish for panty-dropping drummers like you in the real world. You show humans the dirty parts of ourselves. You make us look beyond what we are and into who we want to be. All the Lords and nymphs of the less-than-perfect ideals do. I mean, y’all are pretty much the definition of temptation.
Kai, you are really one of a kind. And I’m so happy I got to read a story told in your perspective.
P.S. Totally have decided I want some drummers like you in the real world.
